Mustafa Ceric, Grand Mufti, Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina

His Eminence, Dr. Mustafa Ceric addresses some of the issues and challenges resulting from the presence of several million Muslims in Europe. He shares some of his thoughts on the integration of the large European Muslim minorities into the social, political and cultural structures of Europe and addresses the question of how Muslims can help build multi-faith, pluralistic European nation states that are more tolerant of and open to 'the other'.

Mustafa Ceric is the Reis-ul-Ulema, President of the Council of Ulema, Grand Mufti of Bosnia-Herzegovina. He graduated from the Medressa in Sarajevo and Al-Azhar University in Cairo, and then returned to Bosnia and became an imam. He then spent several years as Imam of the U.S. Islamic Cultural Center, during which time he earned a Ph.D. in Islamic Theology at the University of Chicago. He came to Zagreb in 1987 where he became a practicing imam at a learning center. Mustafa Ceric is the author of a number of books in Bosnian including Roots of Synthetic Theology in Islam.

Sponsored by the MIT Muslim Students' Association with support from the Technology and Culture Forum, the Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Center for International Studies.
